Finding an angle – people are interesting

By | April 14th, 2019|interesting people, radio, school|

My weekend had a lot of 'space' in it. This was actually a very nice thing and I got to do a lot of what stirs my soul, but it felt weird, because what I was supposed to be doing was editing an audio interview that is due on Monday (tomorrow). It is a lot [...]

Hottest 100 – 1998 – revisited

By | February 6th, 2019|music, radio|

Today - Double J played a 'revised' top 10 from the Hottest 100 of 1998. They were not rewriting history. The top 100 stands. They were just interested to know what we would vote in NOW, in 2019?! 10 songs, one hour, one Wednesday. Too much fun :-) We could vote for one song from [...]

What were your favourites? Hottest 100 2018

By | January 28th, 2019|holidays, music, radio|

How amazing was the Hottest 100 yesterday? Did you listen to it? I started to listen at around number 67 - which I think was Flight Facilities - Need You {Ft. NIKA}. Actually that was number 66, sorry - my mistake. The highlights of the countdown for me were:63 - BOOGIE - BROCKHAMPTON62 - Killing [...]

Voting in the Triple J Hottest 100 closes Tuesday

By | January 17th, 2019|music, radio|

Was so happy to turn the radio up on Monday. It was perfect timing because Triple J is currently open for voting in 2018's Hottest 100. I can't wait to hear it. I love listening to it every year, because it always opens my mind to new music that I have not heard before, or [...]

South coast culture and radio

By | January 8th, 2019|art, holidays, radio|

Do you remember the movie Dirty Dancing? I listened to the soundtrack again a year or so ago. At the time, it reminded me of Turtle. Recently I heard a song from the soundtrack on the local radio station here (2EC). I really love that radio station, I have to say. I think they do [...]

Gretta Ray – Corner Hotel Richmond

By | August 17th, 2018|music, radio|

Gretta Ray is amazing with a capital G. I admit, I have loved pretty much everything that she has put out so far. From 'Long Distance' to 'Towers' to 'Time', she has spoken the contents of my heart more eloquently than I ever could. Is it something about the younger generations? They are more emotionally [...]

Emma Donovan and the Putbacks – Stonnington Jazz Festival

By | May 19th, 2018|friends, music, radio|

I think the thing that moved me most about last night's gig in Windsor as part of the Stonnington Jazz Festival was the fact that Emma, the lead singer of Emma Donovan and the Putbacks is such a rare, but fantastic success story. She sang these words during one of her songs: 'Aboriginal woman, here [...]

Music of the generations – 80s and 90s

By | May 13th, 2018|music, radio|

One thing that really interests me lately, is the different experiences of growing up in different decades, particularly in Australia. Initially, I am framing this through the music that was popular in each decade. It is so interesting to really delve into 80s music, and observe how those songs make me feel. It makes sense [...]

Rainy day radio tunes – PBS

By | April 14th, 2018|radio, weather|

It is such a cold and rainy day in Melbourne today! Wind, cold, pouring rain. I guess winter was bound to come along eventually. :-) We had such a lovely summer. It makes me want to get cosy, with sockettes and tea and listen to my neighbourhood radio station. PBS radio is broadcast from studios [...]
